TETRA: Single standard and comprehensive solutions

In addition to commercial public mobile networks, there are professional radio systems that most citizens don't even know exist. While our well-being and safety largely depends on the accuracy of the functioning of such systems. Today's example is the 1st stage of the TETRA standard professional trunked radio communication network, which has just been put into operation in Nizhny Novgorod by the companies of the ARCAN TETRASVYAZ Consortium. Now the network provides coverage of the city of Nizhny Novgorod and adjacent territories, in the second quarter of 2008 it is planned to cover 70% of the territory of the Nizhny Novgorod region, in the third quarter it is planned to cover the entire region with the network.

The use of the TETRA standard when building an operational radio communication system was determined by the "Concept for the Development of Professional Mobile Radio Communications in the Russian Federation (2008-2015)", which in 2007 was approved by the Government Commission for Federal Communications, which defined the TETRA standard as a single standard for networks of professional mobile radio communications of the Russian Federation. Professional mobile radio communication is characterized by fast connection establishment, high security, quality of information transmission and independence from the public telephone network.

Wikipedia defines the standard. TETRA (TERrestrial Trunked RAdio) is an open digital trunked radio standard developed by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute) to replace the obsolete MPT-1327 standard. The TETRA standard radio interface assumes operation in a standard frequency grid with a step of 25 kHz and a minimum duplex spacing of radio channels of 10 MHz. Frequency ranges from 150 to 900 MHz can be used. In Europe, security services are assigned the 380 - 385/390 - 395 MHz bands, and for commercial organizations there are 410 - 430/450 - 470 MHz and 870 - 876/915 - 921 MHz bands. The TDMA (Time Division Multiple Access) method is used - 4 logical channels (slots) are formed at one physical frequency.

As you can see, a widely used time division scheme is used; GSM networks are built on a similar technical solution. The frequency spectrum used in Russia is 410-430/450-470 MHz. Relatively low frequency allows you to achieve high-quality coverage with a small number of base stations. For example, five BSs were enough to completely cover the territory of Nizhny Novgorod, and it is planned to install about 60 stations in the Nizhny Novgorod region. The average cost of a base station, including all expenses (equipment, infrastructure, site rental, etc.), is 200 thousand euros.

The project in Nizhny Novgorod is an investment project and is being implemented by the ARKAN-TETRASVYAZ Consortium, the estimated amount of capital investments is more than 600 million rubles in 2007-2008. The consortium was formed in 2007 as a result of combining the resources of two groups of companies: TETRASVYAZ Group and ARKAN Group. Created with the aim of promoting joint projects for building control systems and decision-making to ensure life safety using TETRA radio communications. On the basis of the ARKAN technological platform, security systems are being built for various ministries and departments, industry solutions for the Communications industry, emergency services, and subjects of the federation. In turn, TETRASVYAZ JSC is an operator of professional radio communication services of the TETRA standard and is an active participant in the federal project TETRARUS, within the framework of which TETRA radio communication is being developed on the territory of the Russian Federation. The ARKAN-TETRASVYAZ consortium owns a frequency resource and a license to provide operator services throughout Russia.

TETRA communication networks have already been built in St. Petersburg, Moscow, Tver and Nizhny Novgorod, this year ARKAN-TETRASVYAZ plans to expand coverage in the Moscow region and build networks in Krasnodar, Sochi, Kaliningrad. Further plans (for 2009) include the consistent construction of networks in cities with a population of over a million. Compatibility requirements are laid down in the "Concept", and regardless of equipment manufacturers and operators, individual networks will be able to interact through interregional gateways. In the long term - the creation of a unified structure of professional radio communications in Russia.

Complex approach

The demonstration of the system's capabilities in Nizhny Novgorod was held with the participation of the Minister of Information Technologies and Communications of the Russian Federation L.D. Reiman and the governor of the Nizhny Novgorod region V.P. Shantseva. What caused close attention to the seemingly not so outstanding event in the development of service radio communications? The essence and significance of the project is a new approach to building an integrated security system and ensuring the life of the region. The resources of the TETRA network will be combined with the existing resources of communication networks, signaling and monitoring systems into a single information and communication space, on the basis of which it is planned to create an integrated security system in the future:

  • emergency management systems;
  • security systems for healthcare facilities, culture, education, large industrial enterprises;
  • monitoring centers of municipalities, situational center of the Governor.

The use of the TETRA professional radio communication network will enable the regional authorities and emergency services to carry out full and large-scale monitoring of the situation. And a single telecommunications structure greatly facilitates and accelerates the coordinated actions of all services. An increase in the efficiency of joint actions of Nissan emergency services and a reduction in response time from 1 hour to 30-40 minutes is promised. And, as a result, a decrease in population losses in emergency and emergency situations by 15-30 percent.

In the future, the integrated security system based on the TETRA network will provide System 112 with additional information resources when it is built in the Nizhny Novgorod Region. It is supposed to automatically receive alarm messages from security, fire and alarm systems and telemetry sensors, as well as interface with control, communication and monitoring systems for emergency services. The call center (single number 112) receives calls from the public with a time delay and inaccurate information, while the facility monitoring system (automated incident registration) uses data from video surveillance systems, specialized security, alarm and monitoring systems. By providing 112 services with timely and accurate information about the crisis in order to effectively respond to emergency services.

Tests "on the ground"

Using the resources of the created radio communication network, exercises were conducted to eliminate two simulated emergencies. The first episode of the exercise - the breakthrough of the heating plant, the arrival of forces and means of emergency services to the place of emergency and the elimination of the consequences of the emergency were displayed in real time on the electronic map of the control panel installed in the Central Control Center of the Ministry of Emergency Situations as part of the ARKAN TETRASVYAZ software and hardware complex. During the second training operation (the fire of the post office), a mobile operational headquarters was deployed on the spot, which coordinated the actions of emergency services directly from the scene.

The scale of the events carried out can be estimated from the quote from the press release:

“The exercises involved: disaster medicine, rescue team of the Ministry of Emergency Situations, emergency services of housing and communal services, fire extinguishing service, Federal State Unitary Enterprise Russian Post, Federal State Unitary Enterprise Svyaz-Safety.

As part of the exercises, issues of interdepartmental interaction of DDS (duty dispatch services) of the Ministry of Emergency Situations, duty services of other emergency services (01, 03, etc.) are being worked out to work out mechanisms for emergency response when using the forces and means of emergency response services during the exercises information resources were involved: Integrated information system for video monitoring of housing and communal services (KISM housing and communal services), System for monitoring and managing forces and means based on mobile radio communication of the TETRA standard, Videoconferencing system for the operational distribution control of the governor (ORU), Mobile dispatcher console for monitoring forces and means based on radio communication standard TETRA.
